UCLA Quarterback's Dorm Room Hot Tub Dream Drained

Ah, remember those college days when anything seemed possible? UCLA quarterback Josh Rosen is living the freshman life we could only dream of, by installing an inflatable hot tub smack dab in the middle of his college dorm room. It was only a matter of time before he would get caught, but at least he'll now have a story to tell his grandchildren one day.

After photos and videos of the hot tub went viral last week, including a video Rosen posted on Instagram showing him eating food on a paper plate while soaking in the tub (very college), UCLA administrators heard about it and have since taken it down. UCLA Associate Media Director, Ricardo Vazquez, told TMZ, "We have been told that the hot tub has been removed from his room. It's gone."

Vazquez added that the hot tub violated the UCLA residential housing policy on moving in furnishings into a dorm room that aren't supposed to be there.
